Columns in architecture represent the cornerstones of a building, thus symbolizing stability, balance and solidity.
Like many vertical elements, they symbolically connect Earth and Sky, becoming an expression of men’s gratitude towards the gods, as well as stability, strength and perfect balance.
Imposing and elegant, marble columns are a highly effective decorative solution, suitable for any style, from classic to modern. They will easily combine with important antiques, but also with the more modern styles of liberty and rococo inspiration. In contrast with the clean lines of modern and design settings, they will instead be able to give a touch of timeless elegance.
Bardiglio marble is a precious Italian marble, mainly extracted in the Apuan Alps area. Compact lithotype with very fine grain, medium hardness and easy to work with, it has an overall gray colour, which makes it ideal for multiple combinations.
